My dear sister Catherine and her fiancé Christian approached me to design their wedding invitations.
I created a symbol using the two C’s of their names. The joining of the two C’s represents the union of Catherine and Christian, and is also illustrative of two wedding rings.
We selected a gold foil for its elegance and luminous quality, as well as its symbolic reference to wedding rings.
The invites were printed on a pale cream stock with a subtle texture, and placed in matching cream envelopes which were stamped with the symbol.
I also created a decorative pattern based on the symbol of the linking C’s which we had screen-printed on a linen tea towel as gift for the wedding guests.
